terror attacks. >> with respect to the keystone, secretary clinton has put in place a very open and transparent process, which i am committed to seeing through. i can guarantee you that it will be fair and transparent, accountable, and we hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term. i do not want to pin down precisely when, but i assure you, in the near term. i will not go into the merits of it here today. i take great respect, as i did in my comments earlier, to the important energy relationship with canada and the importance of the overall relationship, but we have a legitimate process that is underway, and i intend to honor that. >> we had a good discussion with respect to keystone. we appreciated the secretary's comments at his confirmation hearings. we spoke about making decisions based on science and based on fact. obviously, when it comes to the environment, i think we have like-minded objectives. mr. harper and mr. obama have both set a 7% reduction in emissions. -- 17% we have worked together on reducing emissions in cars and truck

the problem which was never addressed in dodd-frank. also the simple fact that during the clinton administration and alter the bush administration, they did nothing to rein in fannie mae and freddie mac which mr. bush could have done with his hud critz terry and reduced the mandates from over 60% that they wanted subprime mortgages. this is what caused the collapse. right now, fannie mae and freddie mac are making it more difficult to get a mortgage but they are going through the fha. this is part of the problem -- not that we don't have enough regulation, is that we don't have good regulation or people enforcing those regulations. guest: he raises a lot of really excellent points. you have to come back to the causes of the financial crisis. you are right, the rating agencies played a part in the financial crisis and subprime mortgages played a part and one of the parts that was played it was pay that was encouraging these companies to take risks, and that is why it is so important for us to review the reports that we did. i will give you a perfect example. you had loan officers a
